Great Italian Short Stories of the Twentieth Century/I grandi racconti italiani del Novecento:
A Dual-Language Book (English and Italian).
Edited and translated by Jacob Blakesley.
This anthology highlights the rich range of modern Italian fiction, presenting the first English translations of works by many famous authors. Contents include fables and stories by Italo Calvino, Elsa Morante, Alberto Moravia, and Cesare Pavese; historical fiction by Leonardo Sciascia and Mario Rigoni Stern; and little-known tales by Luigi Pirandello and Carlo Emilio Gadda.
Each story is both in English and in Italian. We hope that you will enjoy reading it.
No further apparatus or reference is necessary for this wonderful self-contained text.
This can also provide an opportunity for students of Italian language and literature as well as readers wishing to brush up on their language skills.
A Dover (2013) original publication.
We are looking forward to see you there.
